This paper discusses the prevalence, outcomes, and evidence for best management of hyperglycemia and diabetes in hospitalized patients outside the critical care setting.

Finally something about it. The sliding scale is the kind of thing you learn from others doctors without ever know how have it begun.

No es claro en que momento iniciar el uso de insulinas de acción prolongada como lantus o nph especialmente en pacientes que al ingreso tienen trauma, infeccion (no necesariamente sepsis) o un evento quirúrgico .
Me gustaría saber cual es la recomendación del autor de este excelente artículo

Most physicians are deterred by their patients who are type 2 diabetics who cringe at the word insulin. important to review with them that this type of insulin dosing not quite the same as type 1
They seem to need to know "they are not that bad"
I try to reassure them they will continue their oral medications and the basal insulin is merely an extra boost.
